From grill to griddle, the new Beyond Sausage has a meatier taste and even juicier texture that’s packed with delicious flavor and satisfying sizzle

El Segundo, Calif. July 18, 2023 – Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND), a leader in plant-based meat, today announced that the newest iteration of its #1 selling[1] plant-based Beyond Sausage® is rolling out in foodservice. The latest version of Beyond Sausage delivers an even juicier, more flavorful experience and meatier texture, and is the next step forward in providing consumers with absolutely delicious plant-based meats that are indistinguishable from their animal protein counterparts while being better for people and the planet.

A Juicier, Meatier Beyond Sausage

The delicious new iteration of Beyond Sausage features an enhanced flavor profile and new aromatic blend of spices, including garlic powder, onion powder and paprika, to deliver the mouthwatering taste of traditional pork sausage. Available in three varieties, Brat Original, Hot Italian and Sweet Italian, consumer testing[2] has shown a strong preference for the newest version of Beyond Sausage, praising its overall flavor and texture. Perfect for adding to pizzas, pastas and sandwiches, the new Beyond Sausage is easier to cook and can be prepared on a flat top, grill or skillet.

Made with simple, plant-based ingredients like peas and brown rice, Beyond Sausage delivers the savory, sizzling experience of traditional pork sausage while offering the added benefits of plant-based protein. An excellent source of protein with 16 grams per link, Beyond Sausage has 40% less saturated fat than a leading brand of pork sausage and no cholesterol, soy, gluten, GMOs or added antibiotics and hormones.

“Beyond Sausage is the #1 selling plant-based dinner sausage in broadline foodservice,” said Dawn Lockwood, VP and Head of Foodservice at Beyond Meat. “This is an excellent product made even better, and we’re confident that operators and guests are going to be impressed by the enhanced taste, texture and juiciness of the new Beyond Sausage.”
